I just saw this thread and that angler is gorgeous. I'm about to consider starting up a new tank just for him also. What's the minimum tank size for them?

I believe some say 20 gallons and others say 30 gallons minimum. I feel my 29 is good enough.

Eww.... What is it? I'm glad you've got readings for everything though.

It's the shrimp decaying in a nylon, and that's the goo seeping out.

I just read the past 18 pages of your thread! Your rockscape looks amazing, and I really like the look of that angler fish. My LFS just sold a leaf fish that they had kept for months, I considered getting a separate tank for it a bunch of times.

In my Biocube 29, the only flow I have is a Koralia 550. I'm adding a 425 with it, because a 550 alone isn't quite enough flow for the SPS I want in the future.

I would really recommend getting a torch coral for the tank. I have a medium one, it looks really amazing. It is far my favorite coral. With the extra flow I'm going to add, it will look stunning. I really like the mushrooms that you picked out on DD, too.

Torch is certain, as I don't have room in the 54. Mushrooms are good, I'll probably add some ricordias as well as I really like them. The fish is very stunning indeed and I'm excited to get one.

I decided to go with a Vortech MP10 to eliminate having multiple PH's in the tank.

As for the scape, my plan was to do a minimalist scape, while still trying to duplicate the fishes natural tendencies. For ex. If you watch any videos you will see they like to perch as well as lean with their pec muscles. The tonga branch answered that. I also kept the overall amount of rock to a minimum because I took into account many of the corals I want for this tank will come attached to a rock of their own, therefore I didn't want to have too much rock, or have to remove the base rock I added already.

I'm HOPING that I won't have to move this scape around too much as its very simple, very sturdy, and nice to look at.
